"On masks, being an outsider, and dread: An interview with Alina Stefanescu" (Former Cactus, June 2018)

"Dreaming in utero", Mr. Bear's Violet Hour Saloon (Jan. 9, 2018)
In which Mr. Bear reads from Alina Stefanescu's equally bewitching and unsettling book "stories to read aloud to your fetus" from Finishing Line Press. A piercing fusion of ancient magic and modern bodies, love and pain, certainties and the unknown, these half-poem, half-fairy tale seedlings birth a new mythology to swim through your blood, passing secrets through your veins.

"12 or 20 questions with Rob McClellan" (August 2017)

"We Shall Overcome" series (Les Femmes Folles, July 2017)
Alina discusses Stories to Read to Your Fetus and writing the resistance of female bodies.

"The color of missing"Mr. Bear's Violet Hour Saloon (#104, July 26, 2016) 
In which Mr. Bear reads the shimmering work of Alina Stefanescu, where sunsets and birds and stamps and mothers-in-law and boats are tied together with threads of light, color, missing, desire, searching, secrets almost translated. These stories are like looking at your heart through a kaleidoscope — prepare to be dazzled.
